Ever find yourself stuck in a creative rut? After the greyest start to spring ever, the ever-lovely Maz found herself struggling to find the inspiration and motivation needed to get crafting. It should be the perfect time of year for us to start thinking about the garden – but the weather has certainly done its best to put a stop to any garden crafts so far! Well, fear not crafters – with the promise of more sunshine on the way, Maz has put together a fantastic garden crafting project. Ever wonder why some of your terracotta pots end up cracked and ruined, whilst others survive the winter? Maz knows why… and she knows what to do about it too! Check out her waterproofing tutorial below, and discover how you too can glam up your garden pots, whilst ensuring they cope with whatever the British weather throws at them!

At last, dear reader, the decks were cleared, all obligations sorted, and I could shut myself away and begin making my holiday dress! It was not without a little apprehension that I got all my dressmaking kit together — it has been quite some time since […]
Why is it that the minute you have cleared the decks, tidied the house, fed all creatures and humans who might look to you for feeding within the next three or so hours, called anyone expecting a call from you, and attended to all-important emails and anything else that might distract you, you settle yourself into your craft corner with all the materials for your next project at the ready… and then someone peeks around the corner and starts a conversation?
Well, here we go. This is the first blog post for ‘Maz Makes‘! It seems fitting that in this first blog, I focus on “Maz Makes… A Start”. But first, I’ll give you a quick introduction. I’m someone who loves anything creative, created, or in the […]
